Four Injured In 'Attempted Terrorist Attack' At Port Authority Terminal

Manhattan 'explosion': Police responding to reports of incident at bus terminal

The device went off in a corridor connecting the Times Square and Port Authority stations on the city's west side, one of the busiest commuter hubs, at 7:30am during the morning rush.

"When we hear of an attack in the subways, it's incredibly unsettling", New York City mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters at a news conference. "Thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goal".

In video from the horrific incident, bystanders can be seen going to their destinations prior to the explosion. Sources say the bomb only partially detonated after malfunctioning. "He intentionally detonated that device", said Police Commissioner James O'Neil. During the course of Ullah's arrest, officers located on his person and in the surrounding area what appeared to be the components of an exploded pipe bomb.

The 27-year-old NYC bombing suspect Akayed Ullah reportedly chose to attack Port Authority because of its Christmas-themed posters. Collins was assisted by three other officers: Sean Gallagher, Anthony Manfredini and Drew Preston.

He lived in the same apartment building as his brother whom he recently worked with at an electrical company close to Port Authority, police said.

"Trump you failed to protect your nation", Ullah said on Facebook before the attack.

"Our family like all families is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all New Yorkers". The officials said he lives in Brooklyn and may be of Bangladeshi descent. The police said just three other people were injured in the attack and that the injuries were not life-threatening.

Veronica Chavez was with her son Alex after being treated for ringing in her ears. "Let us get back to work". "We can't be scared".

The explosion triggered a massive emergency response by police and firefighters both above and below ground, tangling subway and bus service at the nearby Port Authority bus terminal. Ullah is from the Bangladeshi city of Chittagong and is a USA resident, the country's police chief said.

Suspect affiliations: It's unclear if Ullah is linked to any terror organization, but when asked if Ullah was connected to ISIS, O'Neill responded only that Ullah "did make statements, but we will not talk about that".

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC that the man was inspired by the Islamic State terror group and originally came from Bangladesh.

The CNN quoted New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as saying that the suspect had an "effectively low-tech device" on him this morning at Port Authority. "And we actually show that a society of many faiths and many backgrounds can work".

Police on the scene told News Corp Australia they were "not allowed" to comment. "That's exactly what they want".

Sanders followed up during the afternoon White House press briefing to call the incident terrorism and praise responders on the scenes.
